Hello everyone! 🙂
Yesterday, I enjoyed attending the event ‘Fascinating Rhythm’ with my parents. This was a local event presented by the Llandaff Theatre Company. It was an amateur performance of singers and music of nostalgic music from the 30s, 40s and 50s. It was a very interesting and enjoyable event.
The event felt like a concert. There were two parts to this event with selections of songs and music from the UK and USA. Part 1 had songs and music by George Gershin; Cole Porter and the War Years. Part 2 had songs and music by Frank Loesser (‘Guys and Dolls’); Hoagy Carmichael and Irving Berlin.
I admit there was a lot of music I hadn’t heard before. My Dad enjoyed it as 30s, 40s and 50s music is his speciality. I enjoyed the War Years and Irving Berlin songs and music in the concert. There were songs including ‘Cheek to Cheek’ (which put me in mind of Fred & Ginger); ‘Putting on the Ritz’ (which put me in mind of ‘Jeeves and Wooster’) and ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square’ (which put me in mind of John Le Mesurier as Sergeant Wilson from the ‘Dad’s Army Stage Show’). 😀
There were also two piano medleys performed at the events. A slideshow was also shown during the event. This slideshow had pictures and videos of famous composers and entertainers from the 30s; 40s and 50s. Some of these I recognised such as Fred Astarie and Ginger Rogers; Laurel & Hardy and Glenn Miller.
‘Fascinating Rhythm’ was an enjoyable evening yesterday. The ensemble of performers put on a show that was interesting and enjoyable. I would like to see more shows from the Llandaff Theatre Company. Hopefully the next one I see will be like a play as performed in the theatre or something.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now!
